First Day of School, 2009

Hello my friends! I hope I still have a few readers left, after I accidently took the summer off. Thank you for sticking with me! Even though the kids have been in school for a month now, I have been afraid to touch the blog, not sure that I still remembered how to do it.

So this will be a quickie. A test. Just a few highlights (and a few lowlights) of the summer months.

We had a busy and fun summer--we went on several trips. One that will forever be lovingly referred to as "Barf-fest 2009".

I participated in Dye for Glory and WON! Making the summer even busier for me as I wasn't really planning on dyeing much yarn. But I don't mean to complain! It was good.

In the knitting category: I went on a scarf kick, a sweater kick, a Barn Raising square kick, and a Magic Ball kick.

In the kid category: a much anticipated youngest is now in (half day) kindergarten! While that doesn't give me any more alone time than I had last year, I have been very excited for all 3 to be at the same school. I love our elementary school and do a lot of volunteering there. I intend to savor these next 2 years.

We got a puppy!

I am tired.

But...I'm slowing getting back into the swing of things. I think I am better with the routine that school brings, and fall is my favorite season. I'll be back in a few days with some knitting to report.

Glad you are back! No wonder you are tired, you've got a lot going on. I'm glad you finally posted about the Dye for Glory, I was so excited to see you as a winner. And Stephanie P-M recently mentioned knitting a sock with your yarn in her blog :)

I know the competition was fierce, but I'm not at all surprised you won in Dye for Glory. You do really nice work. ;) Congrats!
